So Flickr has just recently announced a complete shake up of its plans - and the old pro plan is pretty much being phased out...

So where does this leave the Free Flickr Pro account with Telecom subscription anyone know if it will simply cancel when it reaches renewal or will it continue indefinitely?

I am struggling to see much of a difference apart from being ad free. Expect for one, they will charge you a fee to use? At $499 I don't think they will be upgrading people to a 2TB account, which only doubles the storage. That would make a 1TB account cost at least $250. A 1TB account sounds odd too, because that is the size, or half the size of a whole harddrive. If people are using that much data, how can they provide it for free.

Yeah agreed - seems a very odd move. They must be pushing for eyeballs rather than subscriptions - so making it more appealing for the masses.

I think the old telecom pro plan is what they're calling the recurring, so unlimited space, 200 photos visible in the photostream 50mb max per image, and 90 secs per video.

The 1 TB has a higher video limit and bigger images I thought, and that we'd have to "downgrade" from the recurring pro to the free (and/or pay the $50 a year) for the new pro.

actually reading the flickr blog - it seems that the pro account will be upgraded with the same new bigger limits on photo and video as the free - just without the 1 TB limit and ads... so i guess its still better than the free account....

  • Those who remain Pro will retain all their original benefits.
  • The photo and video size limits will be upgraded to those offered with our new free account.
  • If you are on a recurring Pro subscription, your payments will remain as is. To see what your current subscription costs, see the previous payment on in your order history.
  • Pro members will never be automatically transitioned to an Ad Free or Doublr subscription
